correct breaker for AC contactor replacement?

I have to swap out a contactor for my AC.

The old contactor was rated for 25A. I have 25A breaker in my panel.

The direct replacmeent contactor has been changed to one rated for 30A. The old 25A ones have been discontinued.

I assume I am still ok on a 25A breaker?

Yes, the replacement is more heavy-duty. Presumably the manufacturer noticed the original ones have been burning up...
